He's racist and bias. He tries to be funny but is very offensive. He always brags about his masters degree from Northwestern, which get old real fast. And he teaches us NOTHING! Literally NOTHING. He thinks that we'll get better by testing. We test so much and it never seems to work. And he doesn't care about music theory, which is awful for a music teacher. He thinks that we can do nothing and gives us music that we played when we first started our instruments. doesnt explain dynamics.

Really nice and funny, unless he is frustrated with the band. Good teacher, beware of his bad side.

Has mood swings; often seems to despair and get really upset when the band isn't performing up to his standards. Then again, he never really had 'standards' for Symphonic Band. Great guy, though.

Awesome teacher. He can be hilarious yet knows when to crack down. Seems stressed out often though, but people know when to take him seriously (or not seriously).

He is so cool!!! He can be pretty intimidating, especially if you're scale testing alone in a room...but he always makes things funny, and he makes the students take him seriously.

Mr. Harshman is exactly what his name implies, harsh. Sometimes he can be very harsh and blunt, but only because he wants to push us beyond our limits. Jordan J

Oddly enough, I have been on much better terms with this guy since I left his class. He's a cool person, but he has high expectations that not all can fulfill.
